So really... what
is Base Set 2? Here are the facts:
Set Size: 130 in the US.
Set Order: 4th set in the US
Release Date: Feburary 28th, 2000 in the US
This set was a combination of Jungle and Base
Set (1). Wizards usually does base reprintings with their
games, but at the time this proved
to be an unpopular decision between Pokémon TCG
fans. (Legendary Collections would later correct this.)
Since this set was 130 large and BS1+Jungle was 166
cards, some cards were taken out.
Cards Gone From Base Set: Koffing, Porygon, Ponyta, Revive,
Devolution Spray, Clefairy Doll, PokéFlute
From Jungle: Oddish, Glome, Vileplume, Eevee,
Vaporeon, Flareon, Jolteon, Mankey, Primeape,
This set was
never released in Japan.
This set was also the first set to introduce the
Japanese foil type on Western Cards.
BS2 Pack Design
The symbol for Base Set 2 is a "2" with a Poké
Ball in the middle.
